Andalusian Supper Club

Want to make the most of your evenings during the week or just don’t want to cook? Well you’re in luck, this week The Jam Tree, Clapham will be hosting two supper clubs with Masterchef winner Dhruv Baker heading up the kitchen. Last year saw Dhruv cooking up Malaysia, Mexican and Asian cuisine and this time he is going slightly more adventurous with an Andalusian theme. The evening will start with cocktails in the garden before heading to the light and airy Bookcase Bar where Dhruv will serve up four courses including dishes such as Andalusian shrimp and spring onion […]

Vegan Afternoon Tea Review

If there is one thing London does well it’s an afternoon tea, seeing as England is the creator of the mid-afternoon pick me up, we certainly should be. But after over 150 years of enjoying them, creative types have started trying to re-invent them. We’ve seen Mad Hatter themes, Chelsea Flower themes, Halloween, Musical, Christmas, even an Asian afternoon tea! What we haven’t heard of is a vegan afternoon tea, until now that is. The newly launched restaurant "RAW" at La Suite West offers a new health focused option when it comes to dining which has recently extended its menu […]

Bentley’s Review

Bentley’s, on Swallow Street, is situated in a historic Victorian building on the borders of Soho and Mayfair. The restaurant came to life in 2005, when it was taken over by talented chef and restaurateur Richard Corrigan. He refurbished the venue to its former glory, making the building one of the oldest and most prestigious seafood restaurants in London today. Their passion and skill for seafood is clear as soon as you taste the food; our favourite was the Bentley Lobster which was full of flavour and a definite recommendation. A close second were the delicious oysters, but if you […]

Fish Market: Review

We all know that sharing is caring and with this (possibly) in mind, Fish Market restaurant have launched a new sharing platter menu, The Fish Shack which is available at the weekends. Despite the rain that kept coming through in bursts we chose to sat outside; with plants winding around the railings hiding the bustle of Bishopsgate, large umbrellas forming a canopy across the whole terrace and heaters we were kept nice and snug, but if you’re able to go in the evening when it’s dry then the terrace is lovely with twinkling lights and flickering candles. The menu is […]

Radio Rooftop Bar: Review

The Radio Rooftop Bar at ME London, I’ve heard so much about it, recommended it to friends when they’ve asked for places to go and raved about it to others. I’ve just never quite made it there. So with the sun shining and thinking it would be the perfect time to experience the roof-top bar and see London in all its glory, I booked a table and then what happened? It rained. Did that deter us?  Of course it didn’t – we are true Brits after all, nor did it deter the rest of London since the bar was packed […]

Paradise Review

It is rarely that you come across a restaurant that delivers whole-heartedly, but luckily for us Paradise by way of Kensal Green is one of those places. From charming and friendly staff to delicious good and varied and creative cocktails, Paradise is a real winner, heck even the décor had us impressed with its shabby, chic design. After having perused many, many a menu seeing a Cherry and Nectarine Salad as a starter was an unexpected surprise which impelled us to try it. It stood its ground as an enjoyable dish with perfectly ripened fruit, baby spinach, peanuts and an […]

The Shisha Parlour at The Lancaster London

Fancy something a bit different to sipping a Cosmo sitting at a bar after work? Lancaster London has launched a Shisha Tent for all to enjoy over the summer, offering a selection of Shisha flavours, from apple and grape, to blueberry, rose and mint.   Sit back and relax in the beautifully patterned sofas, or lounge over the sporadically placed cushions in a variety of exotic colours. The décor of woven rugs and jewelled lanterns encompassed in shisha smoke brings a Moroccan-Arabian atmosphere to what would otherwise be a plain white marquee, and is a very chilled but suave alternative […]
